About this Event

Join us at the Oakwood Cemetery Annex for the dedication of the Texas historical marker for the Gant Family. Following the dedication we will learn more about the Gant Family with Michael Corcoran, and Kevin Russell will perform folk songs from the Gants and other John and Alan Lomax discoveries.

The Oakwood Chapel spring exhibit To Hear appreciates Austin’s early musicians including the Besserer Orchestra, the Gant Family, and Ernie Mae Crafton Miller. They played in music halls such as Scholz Garten, Pressler Beer Garden, and the New Orleans Club.
